It depended on where you were teaching. If you were a teacher in an inner city school, in Detroit, Cleveland, Atlanta, whatever, you either had an automatic deferment or you were just not drafted. There was too big a shortage of teachers who would work in inner cities at the time, esp after the race riots.

Teachers in "big city" schools were not drafted for the most part.
